Architect Pedro Useche’s Home : A Shelter for his Art
This is an architect’s home. Just as you would expect, it is fabulous right down to the story behind it. As a young architect, Pedro Useche learned to make furniture because he didn’t have money to buy it. His talent shaped his artistic expression and his residence represents his success. Each furniture piece in this residence is designed by the architect himself, adding character to the interiors. Located in Sao Paolo, Brasil, the residence owned by the Venezuelan architect Pedro Useche can be described as a versatile safe heaven. Each space seems to tell another story yet the whole floor plan feels like a guided tour through the inhabitant’s lifestyle. Its location in the up-the-hill sophisticated Morumbi neighbourhood gives the house an opportunity to offer beautiful panoramas. The three-storey residence gathers 1,000 square meters of private and entertaining spaces. A double-height living room offers plenty of space for the architect’s art collections and creates a bright and airy atmosphere. Solar energy panels are the eco-friendly feature every home needs and the luscious garden creates a sense of equilibrium.
